Mini-Quiz: Navigation for a Blind Dog

by Ron Kurtus (updated 18 May 2023)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How well can a blind dog navigate by touching things with its nose?

It allows the dog to tell exactly where things are in a room

Not very well, since it is a shock, and it is also easy to get disoriented

By bumping into each wall, the dog will know the size of the room

2. What is a good hearing cue for orientation in a room?

A radio or TV turned on in a fixed location in the house

A bell around the dog's collar

Echoes off the walls from walking on the rug

3. How does a blind dog typically navigate by smelling odors?

By barking at the smell of a dog outside

The dog holds its head up high, turns its head, and sniffs in the air

The dog sniffs along the floor

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Understanding Senses. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
